I'd like to add a few of my favorites to this list.

I think most of us remember when Camilla fell down the rabbit hole and did some serious damage to her ankle was it? I had to admire how she had the stamina to still make and participate in royal duties whether it be in a wheelchair, crutches or motorized scooter even. The part that really impressed me a lot was when Charles himself pushed her wheelchair as they entered the Royal Opera House. He could very well have had her lady-in-waiting perform that duty for her but he chose to do the husbandly thing.


And this one has to be one of my all time favorite ones. Their Christmas card from 2008. NO one can say these two don't enjoy life as it comes!

People stop wasting your time trying to convince people who do not want to be convinced. No matter what you say they are still going to hate her and hate them together; can we please move on to a more productive conversation?

While I appreciate all the great pictures, I am not sure why we keep going back to how Camilla looks and based her looks they can't be really happy. First looks don't make a marriage. Second the POW as a young man was cute in a funny looking way and Camilla was cute with a banging body. He was attracted to her then and he is now. When you look at your partner after 30 years you see the young happy person you fell in love with-not evevery wrinkle, gray hair or bald spot. Finally this is not supposed to be Diana vs Camilla but it is drifting that way. Diana was a beautiful girl and I believed that before things fell apart the POW loved her too.

I have always been lead to believe that Camilla was always unattractive based on the pictures of her that were splashed everywhere in the early 90's. But by actually doing some digging I have found some pictures where she really looks quite pretty. But even if she wasn't beautiful young and isn't beautiful now, like sthreats said the physical does not make a marriage; and Charles and Camilla's relationship clearly goes much deeper than the shallow exterior.

I've never seen this one; thanks for posting. It is a funny, endearing and actually intimate photo.

I agree with you.

Unfortunately I get angry when I come across shallow people who only judge people for their looks.

I don't think Camilla is unattractive.

She looks like what she is, a nice-looking woman in her sixties! (In fact, she looks fine compared to other women of her generation, much better than Fergie who is years younger).

Diana died young, so of course she leaves behind an image of beauty and style. But if she had lived, she too would have aged and inevitably become less attractive.

What matters is the way two people complement one another and the way in which they mesh, not some transient beauty, imo.

Great post.

Camilla was never what most would consider a beauty outwardly, but to someone she was/is attractive and that's what matters.

The Christmas card is amusing. They certainly don't lack a sense of humor. I love it. The video is sweet. Again, shows us that they care deeply for one another, and not afraid of showing it.

That must make participating on a forum where other people tell what they see and hear an interesting experience for you.

That's the beauty of a forum. We all come from all over the world with an interest in royalty. We may have preconceived ideas and opinions and with the sharing of thoughts and ideas from different angles and aspects, we can enrich our knowledge base by leaps and bounds and perhaps with a bit of education even change a view or two. Its been an amazing journey for me.

This is obviously your pride. Mine is to have changed my mind about them, especially since 2005, and found understanding and, yes a strong word for some people here, forgiveness.

There's been a quick clean up in this thread.

1) Please note that all photos (and subsequent posts) that violate TRF's photo policy have been deleted as they violate TRF's photo policy. If you do not own the rights to such photos of Charles and Camilla, please do not post them directly on TRF.

2) The usual posts that bring up Diana have been deleted as off topic. Folk, I don't know how to say this without being blunt ---- Diana died in 1997. Charles and Camilla married in 2005. While its certainly plausible to have your opinion of Charles and Camilla change since the death of Diana, we are not going to rehash the Charles/Diana/Camilla triangle, Saint Diana vs. Evil Camilla, etc. We are just not going to do it.

3) Finally, this is much more of a discussion thread than a picture thread, so if you guys would like to post some of these Charles and Camilla pictures, may I suggest the following thread Charles and Camilla Picture Thread ?

4) Beauty if in the eye of the beholder. And if someone is going to judge someone else's marriage based on looks alone (when they no idea on what goes on behind closed doors) well, I say that in itself says a lot about the judger and not the judgee. An endless debate about a persons look is a never ending discussion IMO. As a previous poster stated, the opinions of some cannot or will not be changed.

5) The post counts of some members might have changed, as I have merged some posts.

6) Let's all remember to respect the opinions of others, even if you disagree with them.

Thanks!

I'm pondering whether Tom and Laura may not have such a spiffy relationship with step-daddy. They are children of a very public divorce we don't know what issues they may have with mommy 's new husband... Just wondering.

Charles is Tom's godfather and they have always appeared to have excellent relationship. Laura has been close to not only Prince Charles, but also William and Harry, as is evident from William's choice to include her daughter among bridesmaids for his wedding.

They're adults and they were adults when their parents divorced. Their parents obviously maintain a cordial relationship, and I'm reasonably confident they handled it better than that.
